Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television
About six months ago, my Sony KP-57HW40 started flashing red and then turn off. The Timer/Standby LED flashed 8 times. If kept turning it ON several times, it would eventually stayed on and worked normally. About a month ago, I started seeing curving red lines across the screen when the background was black. Today, it stopped working - no picture with a moment of light blue screen and it flashed several times then turned itself off. The LED now flashed 6 times. I opened the rear panel and noticed that the RED CRT was not working at all!
I am an electronics engineer but have never worked with TV. I am afraid that my problem is more than the FBT, as I read from the previous posts. I hate to give it up yet. I really need helps. I would appreciate any suggestion. Thank you.

ITS PROBABLY THE RED PICTURE TUB (CRT). IT LOOKS EASY TO INSTALL, BUT YOU NEED TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SCREEN ONCE IT IS INSTALLED. THE PART IS $3OO. TRY TO FIND SOMEONE TO INSTALL IT FOR $150 OR LESS. HERE IS A WEBSITE TO HELP YOU MAKE ADJUSTMENT IN THE FUTURE ON YOU OWN.
